 >Impressive! What kind of RX-antenna are you using? Is it the full size 

It's still the full size half wave dipole at low height.
It took me about two years to realize more by accident that it receives
TA signals so well. :-)
Interestingly DJ0ABR and DH5RAE who spot TA signals too but quite rarely
are also using fullsize dipoles but at much more height.
You find a description at DH5RAE's DARC homepage.

After comparisons with the above stations
I believe now it's the quiet location AND the topography of the terrain
which is continuously sloping in NW direction.
Below the antenna there's a slight slope and then it passes into a valley.
